If you saw my last blog post (4 Praises In Spite of my Recent Health Diagnosis), you may have learned information about my POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome).
I have since come to the realization that I must take a temporary step backward in how often I post here on Bumps Are Okay.
I recently started physical therapy geared specifically for POTS patients. Plus, my family recently doubled our homeschooling and general extracurricular activities.
I quickly realized that to be consistent with my physical therapy “homework” that I would need to do my exercises during my normal computer work time. As I find myself on the computer less and less, I sometimes feel an “uh-oh” feeling that I am always behind with something.
I will only be posting on this site once a month (or perhaps less at times). I have some articles I have previously written that will go live on different homeschooling venues over the next few months. I am unable to have a consistent writing schedule during this stage, though.
That being said, I am excited that my mom is still on board to write for Bumps Are Okay. Plus, as God puts them on my heart, I will also post random (Lord-willing encouraging!) blurbs on my Facebook account, @bumpsareokay. (A page "like" or "follow" goes a long way on Facebook!)
I am not going completely silent online, yet I need to concentrate on my physical therapy to help my body function as well as possible so that I can be the best wife and mom to my family.
Though I have come to realize that my “new normal” (at least for now) looks very different than six months ago, I am thankful that God has allowed me the opportunity to use interesting POTS analogies to teach spiritual concepts. Maybe I will wind up sharing some here along the way.
I pray for further opportunities (whether through articles when windows of writing times open or through opportunities to teach in person), and I want to remember to honor God and encourage others through my BUMPS!
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God (NKJV).
